11 People Dead After a Duck Boat Capsized During a Severe Thunderstorm on Missouri Lake

Eleven people, including children, have died and a number of passengers remain missing after a duck boat capsized during a thunderstorm that ravaged Table Rock Lake in Missouri on Thursday.

About 31 people were on a Ride the Ducks boat in the Ozarks when strong winds caused it to capsize, Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said in a press conference broadcast by KY3.

Rader said seven people were transported to the hospital with injuries and added that the recovery and rescue mission would continue throughout the night with teams of divers. It is not clear how many people remain missing.

He said he believed the boat turned over and sunk due to the stormy weather at about 8 p.m. ET with the thunderstorm winds as high as 60 mph, according to NBC News. The duck boat remains at the bottom of the lake.

Rader added that an off-duty sheriff’s deputy was on the boat and helped rescue people.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The Table Rock Lake Twitter page tweeted it was “aware of a major incident that happened tonight” at the lake “and ask that you pray for those involved as well as law enforcement/first responders.”

In a video captured and shared on Facebook by Jeanie Phillips-Hudson Carr, two duck boats are seen struggling to reach land while a thunderstorm raged on.

One duck boat is seen gaining speed in the lake as it appears to make headway toward land, while the other remains left behind and struggling to remain upright against ferocious winds.

Toward the end of the video, the second boat is seen slowly turning on its side and sinking into the water as shocked bystanders watch from the Branson Belle, a showboat that helped rescue people, according to the Springfield News-Leader.

In a second video posted by Phillips-Hudson Carr, workers on the showboat can be heard desperately calling for rope and help to try to rescue the stricken amphibious boat.

“We are at Branson and on the showboat! A storm came in as we got on and there was 2 ducks that you ride out there and 1 went under. Not sure if everyone on it is ok,” Phillips-Hudson Carr wrote.

In audio obtained by the News-Leader, a dispatcher tells first responders people aboard the Branson Belle were pulling victims out of the water.

“We have a report of a duck that has sank completely,” the dispatcher said. “They have lost sight of it. About 10 people have surfaced, but there were about 20 people on board.”

“They are attempting to pull people out on the Belle and the surrounding dock,” the dispatcher continued. “We have CPR in progress on one. One more they can see, face down in the water. They’re trying to get to at this time.”

A first responder could be heard telling the dispatcher, “Copy that. If you would, go ahead and notify Mercy. Tell’ em to send every truck they’ve got.”

The duck boat was part of Ride the Duck in Branson, Missouri, a fleet which was bought last year by Ripley Entertainment, the company that owns Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

Suzanne Smagala-Potts, a spokeswoman for the company tells PEOPLE they are aware of the situation.

“Number one, our priority is the families and employees, and that’s what we’re focusing on. We are in contact with authorities but we do not have enough information at this time to confirm anything,” Smagala-Potts says.

According to the company’s website, Ride the Ducks is a guided amphibious tour for both land and water that lasts 70 minutes.

Tragic: Husband Finds Wife and Her Mechanic Lover Both Dead from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After They Had Sex in the Garage [Video]

A New Jersey man came home Monday night to find both his wife and her lover dead in the garage.

The two died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex.

via People:

Kahali Johnson said he returned home that night and smelled a strong odor coming from the garage of his apartment, according to WABC. So, he went to investigate, WABC reported.

In the garage, Johnson said he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, and their mechanic near a running vehicle.

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson told the station. “She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911 because, at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.”

Sources told KXAS that Hargrave, 39, and the unnamed mechanic, 59, were allegedly having sex in the car when they succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Law enforcement sources reportedly told the station that Hargrave had allegedly been having sex with the mechanic in exchange for his car work.

The Newark Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and police said the deaths appeared to be accidental, NJ.com reported. Newark Fire Division evacuated the building, and one person was taken to a local hospital, according to the publication.

As for Johnson, the grieving husband told WABC that he blames the apartment complex.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

Sad.

3 YouTube Daredevils Dead in Waterfall Accident

Three popular YouTubers died on Tues., July 3, after accidentally falling over a waterfall more than 1,000 feet in height. Two of the deceased were founders of the High on Life YouTube channel, which featured exotic travel and dangerous outdoor stunts.

The three victims were reportedly part of a group of seven swimming near Shannon Falls outside Squamish, British Columbia. According to eyewitness reports, Megan Scraper slipped and fell 30 meters into fast-moving water just above the falls. Alexey Lyakh and Ryker Gamble are believed to have jumped into the water to try and save her, but all three were swept over the falls. Their bodies were recovered the next day.

According to the CBC, Gamble and Lyakh started High on Life with two other childhood friends. Previous videos posted by the deceased and the High on Life channel show lots of exotic travel as well as some high-risk outdoor activities, including cliff jumping and crossing decrepit rail bridges. Some of the group’s YouTube videos emphasize the danger of certain activities. One video, featuring Gamble descending a harrowing natural water chute, is accompanied by a disclaimer stating that “Our team has been trained and involved in gymnastics, diving, stunts, and the extreme sports community for over a decade,” and warning others against trying to replicate what they see.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

The accident has nonetheless added new fuel to long-running debates about the potential danger of social media featuring risky activities. That’s in large part because the High on Life group has previously been accused of violating safety and natural preservation rules. In 2016, Gamble and Lyakh posted video showing themselves leaving designated trails in Yellowstone National Park and walking near the Grand Prismatic Spring, an ecologically delicate and potentially dangerous hot spring. They were ultimately sentenced to seven days in jail and apologized for their behavior.

Members of the group, including Gamble and Lyakh, were also accused of violating rules elsewhere. Those incidents included using bicycles in prohibited areas in Death Valley National Park; swinging from the Corona Arch rock formation in Utah; and wakeboarding on the sensitive Bonneville Salt Flats in the same state. At least some of those incidents were filmed, according to citations.

High on Life currently has more than 500,000 subscribers, no doubt partly thanks to such high-risk stunts. Some have argued that the quest for thrilling footage led the team to take more extreme risks, without the safeguards or oversight that might have been imposed by a more conventional media organization. That dynamic mirrors the documented tendency of algorithm-driven media platforms to encourage ideological extremism among users.

In a video message posted after the tragic deaths, other members of the High on Life team praised the trio’s legacy. “They lived every single day to its fullest,” the memorial stated in part. “They stood for positivity, courage, and living the best life that you can, and they shared and taught their values to millions of people worldwide.”

Caplan, who was known as Brent, was a retailer at the family-owned Caplan’s men’s store in Alexandria. He died July 4 after a year-long battle with brain cancer. He was 54.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo Blasts Trump for ‘Disrespecting’ Dead Journalists

CNN

In the final moments of his first primetime hour on Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo delivered a sharp rebuke of the Trump administration’s decision not to lower flags to half-mast in memory of the five journalists killed in last week’s mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.

Cuomo began by noting that the shooting not only took lives and “shattered families” but also “added another layer of shame on all lawmakers for not doing something to stop the damn shootings.” As the host put it, recent mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland “warranted” flags being lowered outside federal building, so why not this one?

“I’m afraid I know the answer,” Cuomo said. “And it’s because President Trump doesn’t like the media.”

Son Planned Fake Robbery at Parents’ Home—All Three Wound Up Dead

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

It was so simple.

Matthew Lindquist, a 21-year-old Connecticut man, wanted to exchange his dad’s guns for drugs, so he came up with a plan to fake a robbery at his parent’s house, intending to blame it on “two black guys,” according to an arrest affidavit unsealed Tuesday. But the plot went horribly awry—and Lindquist and his parents ended up dead.

It all began days before Christmas, when Lindquist made a deal with another man, Sergio Correa, promising to give him his dad’s guns in exchange for drugs, according to the 17-page arrest affidavit. Together, the pair would fake the robbery, with Correa tying up Matthew to make it look real, the affidavit says.

Black Soldier Found Dead In Maryland’s Deadly Flash Flood After Helping Stranger

The body of a Black National Guardsman who disappeared during treacherous floods in Maryland on Sunday was found in the Patapsco River Tuesday afternoon, Howard County police confirmed to Baltimore’s WBAL.

Local emergency crews used swift water rescue, truck, and ATVs in their search for Eddison Hermond, 39, an Air Force veteran and active-duty member of the Maryland Army National Guard, on Monday. Hermond, wearing a White t-shirt and Black shorts, was pulled underneath the water after he helped rescue a woman and her cat during devastating flooding in Ellicott City on Sunday afternoon, The Baltimore Sun reported. “He stepped over the ledge to try to get to me, and he was washed away,” Kate Bowman, who was helped by Hermond, said.

But what led Hermond to Bowman before his tragic disappearance and death? Here is what else we know about Hermond:

Hermond, who was 6 feet tall with an athletic build, had been visiting a local bar with friends when his day took a turn for the worse, Howard County Police Chief Gary Gardner said. The historic downpour ravaged homes and streets, with the water tragically carrying Hermond away seconds after he helped Bowman. Witnesses last saw the soldier being carried by the current toward the Patapsco River, Bonnie Hoppa, Hermond’s friend wrote on Facebook.

One of the soldier’s friends filed a missing person report with Howard County Police Department after his disappearance.

A “Hope altar” was erected for Hermond, with friends being encouraged to gather around it on Tuesday. Hoppa’s Facebook post was updated after learning about Hermond’s body being recovered, saying that she was waiting for confirmation on his death from official sources after Hermond’s family and next-of-kin had been notified.

There were no other reported deaths from the flood, making Hermond the only fatality as of Tuesday.

Florida Mom Missing Since Mother’s Day Is Presumed Dead — and a Suspect Is Arrested in the Case

Florida police have arrested a woman in connection with the disappearance of a mom-of-three who didn’t pick up her children on Mother’s Day and hasn’t been seen since.

At a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said investigators arrested 50-year-old Kimberly Kessler — who authorities allege was the last person to see 34-year-old Joleen Jensen Cummings alive, according to local TV station WJXT.

Kessler, a co-worker at Tangles Hair Salon with Cummings, is charged with grand theft auto, First Coast News reports. She is also a suspect in Cummings’ disappearance, authorities said Tuesday.

She is being held in lieu of $ 500,000 bond.

Leeper said investigators have evidence to suggest that Cummings is dead but would not release it at this time.

Cummings was last seen leaving her job at Tangles in Fernandina Beach at 5 p.m. on May 12. She was supposed to meet up with her ex-husband in Hilliard on Mother’s Day to pick up her kids but she never showed up. Her mother, Anne Johnson, reported her missing on May 14.

Her beige 2006 Ford Expedition was discovered May 15 in the parking lot of a Home Depot near the salon in Yulee.

That same day, police went to the salon to speak with Kessler, but she didn’t show up to work from that point forward — and the address she had given to her boss was fake, police allege.

Later, investigators discovered surveillance video from 1:17 a.m. on May 13 that showed Kessler, who worked at the salon that day and had been employed there for about one month, parking Cummings’ SUV.

Police found Kessler, who went by the alias Jennifer Sybert, at a truck stop on May 16, First Coast News reports.

Police said Kessler is from Pennsylvania and had been using a fake social security number.

On Sunday, Cummings’ mother Anne Johnson posted an emotional message to Facebook about her missing daughter. “When parents shed tears about their children, I believe with all my heart that God hears those prayers of lament, and all of us can agree that when our kids hurt and go through difficulties that we as a parent shed tears,”

“Today is the 7th day we are without my daughter,” she continued. “Today is 7 days her children are without their mother. Today is 7 days that her brother and sister are without their sister. Today is 7 days that her close friends are without their friend. Let’s bring Joleen home!”

It was not immediately clear if Kessler has retained an attorney.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’: Morgan Helps Nick Find Peace

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains spoilers from the Season 4, Episode 3 of Fear the Walking Dead. Proceed at your own risk.

There are a lot of parallels between Nick and the Morgan from three or four seasons ago in The Walking Dead. Both spent a chunk of time being a solo savage on in the open, both took it so far they lost themselves, and both tried to right the ship by going into a self-prescribed exile — the season started with Morgan locking himself up in Jadis’ junkyard and Nick on a long stint of refusing to leave The Diamond.

“You try to do the right thing, and you end up doing the worst,” Nick tells his mother Madison in a flashback to when the Vultures still had The Diamond under siege. He went out hoping to help his mom find food, and when a mustachioed Vulture – and Charlie, who continues to stab the group in the back – arrive at their spot and take the supplies before them. Nick nearly kills the man.



Morgan notices early that they’re kindred spirits. After Al’s botched escape that dumps the SWAT truck into a ditch, everyone but Nick and Morgan head off on a mission find something to pull it out – a mission that only amounts to the two groups earning a bit of good will from each other – and the two left begin to bond. Nick offers Morgan half a protein bar after seeing the man’s sweet skills with a staff, and he secretly sees Al’s tape of Morgan’s story. The bonding comes to a screeching halt when the two see a blue Camino drive by – the same the mustachioed Vulture drove in the flashback – and Nick takes off after it.

The two end up in a small town, and take cover in a drugstore. Nick confronts Morgan about why he doesn’t kill – because almost every character has to at this point. He already knows the answer – “I lose people, and then I lose myself” – because he watched Al’s tape, but it doesn’t stop him from prying.

“You don’t kill, but I bet you did,” he tells Morgan. Morgan tries to talk him out of finding the man in the Camino, but Nick takes off to look over the town. He eventually finds the car, and the Vulture from the flashback. The man is surprised to see Nick, but Morgan – who stumbled across the man first, and was trying to get him to leave – stops him from killing the Vulture. The man heads off and Nick tells Morgan the only way to stop him is to kill him, so Morgan lets him go and Nick gets himself some sweet, bloody revenge.

“I know where you are Nick, because I was there,” Morgan tells a blood-soaked Nick after he kills the man. He brings up his time with Eastman, and lets Nick take his Art of Peace book. Morgan seems ready to pay-it-forward the way Eastman did for him.

Nick wanders off to read the book, and pulls a blue bonnet – picked from a field him and Madison found where she told him to try to find something good every time they leave The Diamond – from his pocket. He looks at peace, and seems ready to let Morgan help him. And that’s when Charlie shows up and shoots him in the chest.

Yep, the show’s new direction seems hell-bent on brushing a lot of aspects of what made FTWD interesting for three seasons – different time period, visually unique setting, it’s characters – under the rug as quickly as possible. Charlie shot Nick for killing the Vulture and runs off just as the others arrive with the SWAT truck. He dies choking on his own blood surrounded by his sister Alicia, Luci, and Strand.

The last scene cuts from his bloodied, dead body to one of him laying in a field of blue bonnets. Maybe Morgan helped him find peace after all.

Some unanswered questions:

– How long ago was the Vulture’s siege on The Diamond? The guy Nick kills seems genuinely shocked to see him.

– Where is Madison? Dead? Taken by the Vultures?

– Hopefully this week’s episode wasn’t Frank Dillane — one of the original cast member’s — last. If the season continues with flashbacks, he should still be around.

– Was there some chemistry between John and Luci?

Charles Neville Of The Neville Brothers Dead At 79

Charles Neville arrives with The Neville Brothers on stage to perform during the 2008 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival at the New Orleans Fairgrounds Racetrack in New Orleans, Sunday, May 4, 2008. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans-born saxophone player Charles Neville, who once backed up B.B. King and later gained fame with the Neville Brothers band and their rollicking blend of funk, jazz and rhythm and blues, has died. He was 79.

His death came Thursday, months after he disclosed he was fighting pancreatic cancer.

Neville’s career dated to the 1950s when he performed with King and other musical greats. Yet he was best known for three decades of performances with his siblings Aaron, Art and Cyril as the Grammy-winning Neville Brothers band. The band was formed in the 1970s and gained fans with high-energy performances featuring a distinctive fusion of funk, jazz and New Orleans rhythm and blues.

A publicist for Aaron Neville’s management agency confirmed the death in an email. Aaron Neville, who first disclosed the news to WWL-TV in New Orleans, declined an interview but posted a lengthy tribute to his brother on Facebook.

“I know you have a spot in the heavenly band next to James Booker, James Black, Herbert Hardesty, Fats Domino, Johnny Adams all the jazz bebop players who you turned me on to,” Aaron Neville wrote. “Dizzy, Charlie Parker, Miles and the list goes on.”

Charles Neville, who lived in Massachusetts in recent years, had announced in January that he had pancreatic cancer.

His death came a day before the opening of his home town’s signature musical and cultural event, the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

The Neville Brothers were a fixture on closing day of the festival for years. And members of the family continue to be a part of the event. Aaron is scheduled for a May 4 performance. Charles’ daughter, singer Charmaine Neville, is scheduled for a May 5 performance, the same day Aaron’s son Ivan performs with his band Dumpstaphunk.

Charles’ Neville’s life included a stint at Louisiana’s state prison in the early 1960s. He told an interviewer that he was sentenced to five years for possession of two marijuana cigarettes. The prison was notoriously dangerous but Neville said on the public radio program “Music Inside Out” that the time there sharpened his musicianship.

He explained that he worked in the prison music room. “I stayed in the music room practicing all day,” he said. He also had access to books on music, and, at times, exposure to other imprisoned musicians. “James Booker was there,” he said, referring to a celebrated New Orleans pianist.

Tennessee Waffle House Shooting Leave 4 Dead, 4 Others Injured

A shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House restaurant left four people dead and another four suffering from injuries. The assault was stopped when a customer rushed the gunman, snatched away an assault rifle, which prompted the man to flee on foot with barely wearing any clothes.

Local outlet News Channel 5 reports:

It happened around 3:25 a.m. Sunday at 3571 Murfreesboro Pike near Hobson Pike.

Metro Nashville Police Department officials named 29-year-old Travis Reinking, from Illinois, as a person of interest in the shooting, saying the vehicle the gunman used was registered to him.

Police said Reinking drove his pickup truck into the Waffle House parking lot around 3:18 a.m.. He sat in the truck for a few minutes before getting out and immediately shooting and killing two people outside of the restaurant with an AR-15.

Officers said he then went inside and shot and killed another victim.

The outlet adds that the customer, also 29, was able to wrestle the gun from Reinking’s hands and tossed it away. Reinking left the area after she shed a coat and was not wearing any clothes in some reports. Reports say Reinking may have lived in the area and fled home after witnesses say they spotted the man walking near woods shirtless.

‘The Walking Dead’ star Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Calling For a Negan Spin-Off

With Fear the Walking Dead proving a success – it’s now on Season 4 – it’s perhaps no surprise that Walking Dead bosses are talking about expanding the universe further. One of the major characters to make a big impact on the main show has been villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Fans both love to hate and love to love the charismatic bad guy. So the prospect of a spin-off focused on Savior boss Negan is very alluring – and not just to fans. Jeffrey Dean Morgan would love one too.

“I would like to see Negan before the zombie apocalypse,” he told FANDOM while doing publicity for his latest film Rampage. In the movie, Morgan plays a character called Agent Russell, who bears more than a passing resemblance to the Walking Dead bad boy. So much so, in fact, that the actor also discussed the similarities between the two characters, along with the chances that Russell is Negan, and the idea that Rampage could be a prequel to The Walking Dead. You can watch him talking about this here.

More Negan Required


Negan-The-Walking-Dead
Negan was captured by Jadis — and manipulated her into releasing him by tugging on the heartstrings.

“Now, if he’s this guy, Agent Russell, I’d like to see that,” continued Morgan. “But [Walking Dead creator] Robert Kirkman has done a little bit of thought on the Negan pre-zombie apocalypse, and I would be more than happy to see that. I would like to take part in some filming of that. I think that would help explain this character a great deal. Because, unfortunately, the way things go with so many characters and storylines, we don’t see enough — and I think that that is needed, especially when you have a character like Negan.”

The main show has only revealed glimpses, up to now, of Negan’s backstory. And what we’ve learned has been very much according to Negan himself, who is not necessarily a reliable source. Especially when the moments when he’s let details slip have been during periods where he’s been vulnerable. Notably, when marooned in a hut surrounded by walkers with Father Gabriel, and also when tied up by Jadis. He’s certainly been able to manipulate both by spilling some secrets about his past in each instance. So we surely have to take what we’ve learned so far about Negan with a pinch of salt.

Backstory Reveal


The-Walking-Dead-Negan-Gabriel
Negan recounted elements of his backstory to soften Father Gabriel and bend him to his will.

But while Morgan definitely feels Negan’s story could be better explored in his own spin-off series, he did tease that there could be more Negan history revelations to come in The Walking Dead.

“[We’ve had] a little bit more this season, which is nice, but I’d like to see more. I think it’s important not only for the development of the character but I think the show. So we’ll see,” he said.

When FANDOM interviewed show boss Greg Nicotero recently, he told us that he’d love to work on a frozen zombie spin-off – which Morgan would also love to be a part of.

“Why don’t we just go up to Canada or upstate New York where I live? That’d be great,” he said. “I’m sick of shooting in Georgia in the middle of summer. That’s rough. I like the idea of shooting some frozen zombies. That would be cool as hell. Literally and figuratively.”

Rampage is in cinemas now.

‘The Walking Dead’: Treachery Within the Saviors Exposed

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 15 of The Walking Dead, entitled “Worth.” Proceed with caution.

Last week’s episode ended with Negan miraculously escaping from Jadis’ captivity. On the way back to Sanctuary, he picked up a mysterious passenger. Armed with the knowledge that Simon ordered the massacre of the Scavengers, Negan was determined to expose the treachery within his ranks.

Negan Is Back



With Negan presumed dead, Simon started to feel comfortable as the big man in charge. He even enjoyed having Gregory underneath his heel. Dwight — who has been working as a double agent — began feeling safe as well. Then, Negan’s whistle broke the silence.

At first, it seemed like Dwight was exposed. However, Negan reassured Dwight, reminding him he needs to do the right thing “when the time comes.”

Negan then held a meeting with his inner circle. Simon started to convince him that he only did what needed to be done. “I’m gonna need you on your knees,” Negan said while wielding Lucille. It seemed like lights out for Simon right then and there but Negan surprisingly declared, “all is forgiven.”

Negan then outlined his plan to bring down the Hilltop once and for all — by surrounding the community with outposts and sniping anyone who leaves for supplies, dwindling them down.

Simon’s Mutiny



Simon, motivated by his brush with death, decided to overthrow Negan. He and his loyal followers met Dwight outside. Once more, Negan’s whistle sound. Dwight had tipped the Savior leader off to Simon’s mutiny. Negan then ordered that Simon’s followers be gunned down, but spared Simon’s life, offering him the chance to fight for control.

With the leadership of the Saviors at stake, the two men squared off in Sanctuary’s main hall. An enraged Simon seemed to be getting the upper hand, but in the end, Negan knocked him down with a leg sweep and choked Simon to his last breath. Thus, Simon’s short-lived mutiny ended.

A Traitor Is Unmasked



While the fight was happening, Dwight handed Gregory the map with Negan’s plan. He told the former Hilltop mayor to deliver it to Rick. Gregory bolted out of Sanctuary as fast as he could.

After the fight, Negan awarded Dwight the position as his “right hand man.” Before Dwight could express his gratitude, Negan had something to show him. Negan opened the door into the next room. Laura – the woman who witnessed Dwight’s betrayal – was inside.

Negan began to put the pieces together of Dwight’s betrayal – calling him a “nothing” and a “nobody.” Dwight was still trying to process what had happened. Negan revealed to Dwight that those plans he showed were fake. At first, Negan thought about killing Dwight but figured he was more useful alive.

A lot of questions have been answered in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. Dwight and Simon received Negan’s punishment like most fan’s expected. But what does Negan really have planned for the Hilltop? What role will Dwight play in the final battle? And will Rick and the others be prepared for what’s to come?

The season-long “all out war” will end with next Sunday’s finale.

Team Captain Among 14 Dead After Bus Carrying Hockey Players Crashes in Canada

(NIPAWIN, Saskatchewan) — Canadians were moved to tears on Saturday after fourteen people were killed and 15 others injured when a truck collided with a bus carrying a junior hockey team to a playoff game.

The bus driving the Humboldt Broncos had 29 passengers, including the driver, when it crashed at about 5 p.m. Friday on Highway 35 in Saskatchewan, Canadian police said.

Among the dead are Broncos head coach Darcy Haugan, team captain Logan Schatz and radio announcer Tyler Bieber.

Three people are in critical condition.

“An entire country is in shock and mourning,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement. “Our national hockey family is a close one, with roots in almost every town – small and big – across Canada. Humboldt is no exception, and today the country and the entire hockey community stands with you.”

In a tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump said he called Trudeau to offer his condolences to the families of victims.

Darren Opp, president of the Nipawin Hawks, who the Broncos were set to play against, said a semi T-boned the players’ bus — an account police confirmed.

“It’s a horrible accident, my God,” Opp said.

Kelly Schatz, Logan’s father, says his 20-year-old son played for the Broncos for just over four years and had served as team captain for the past 2 ½ years. Meanwhile, tributes poured in online for Darcy Haugan, a father of two who was described as an amazing mentor to young players.

The names of others killed have not been confirmed. STARS air ambulance said it sent three helicopters to the scene.

Hassan Masri, an emergency room doctor at Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital who has done work in war-torn Syria, said the crash reminded him of an airstrike.

Dramatic images from the scene appeared to show the bus torn in two by the force of the impact. Debris was scattered on the highway, and a large tractor-trailer lay overturned on the pavement.

The tragedy brought to mind an accident in 1986, when the Swift Current Broncos team bus slid off an icy highway and crashed in late December, killing four players.

The Humboldt Broncos are a close-knit team from the small city of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, which has a population of about 6,000. Many gathered at the community center at the hockey arena there after word of the horrific crash began to circulate.

Humboldt Mayor Rob Muench, wearing a green and yellow Broncos team jersey, hugged people Saturday morning as they came to the Elger Petersen Arena in the Saskatchewan town to comfort each other and learn more.

“It’s overwhelming. It’s been tough on everybody,” Muench said in a phone interview. “We’re a small community, some of those kids have been on the team for a number of years. A lot grew up in the community and everybody knows each other.”

The team was on its way to play in Game 5 of a semi-final against the Nipawin Hawks.

“Hockey was what brought us all together and we had two communities that were rivals in the rink. To find out that it was their first responders that aided our boys just warms your heart,” the mayor said as his voice cracked.

Many people wandered in and out of the arena throughout the morning. In a separate area, multiple crisis workers were assisting.

“Everybody is just so devastated. These poor young boys,” said Penny Lee, the communications manager for the town of Humboldt

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is a junior ‘A’ hockey league under Hockey Canada, which is part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League. It’s open to North American-born players between the ages of 16 and 20.

Team President Kevin Garinger said parents from across western Canada were struggling to cope with the tragedy and were rushing to the scene.

“Our whole community is in shock, we are grieving and we will continue to grieve throughout this ordeal as we try to work toward supporting each other,” he said.

Michelle Straschnitzki, who lives in Airdrie, Alberta, said her 18-year old son Ryan was transported to a hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

“We talked to him, but he said he couldn’t feel his lower extremities so I don’t know what’s going on,” she said. “I am freaking out. I am so sad for all of the teammates and I am losing my mind.”

Opp, the president of the Hawks, said the coaching staff and players from their team were waiting to help.

“They are sitting in the church just waiting to hear any good news,” he said.

Pastor Jordan Gadsby at the Apostolic Church in Nipawin said more than a hundred people had gathered at the church — including parents and grandparents of the players who were on the bus.

“Lots of them are waiting for information,” he said.

Garinger said he still didn’t know the fate of one of the players living in his home.

“We don’t know who has passed and we don’t expect to know right away,” he said.

Garinger said all the team can do now is help the players and their families.

“We just need to try to support each other as we deal with this incredible loss to our community, to our province, to our hockey world.”

Kevin Henry, a coach who runs a hockey school in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, said he knows players on the team.

“This is I would think one of the darkest days in the history of Saskatchewan, especially because hockey is so ingrained in how we grow up here,” he said.

Much of the hockey world issued messages of condolences, including National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman and Saskatchewan native Mike Babcock, who is the Toronto Maple Leafs coach. Babcock said that “it’s got to rip the heart out of your chest.”

Snyder Suggests the Dead Robin in BvS Was Dick Grayson

Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder has been fairly active on social media site Vero over the past few days, with his most recent posts suggesting that Bruce Wayne uses sex as a drug in the movie to forget about the significant baggage he carries on his shoulders. One scene in the movie represents this baggage pretty succinctly, with a brief shot of a defaced Robin uniform belonging to Batman’s former – deceased – sidekick.

It’s long been assumed that the the outfit was meant to represent Jason Todd, the second Robin, in a reflection of the comic book storyline which saw his death – but if Snyder is to be believed, it may actually have been referring to Dick Grayson, the original sidekick to call himself Robin.

‘The Walking Dead’: Jadis’ Plan For Negan Revealed

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead entitled “Still Gotta Mean Something.” Proceed with caution.

Fans finally learned Jadis’ plan for Negan Sunday night.

The leader (and sole survivor) of the Scavengers captured the Savior leader after his scuffle with Rick. She took his clothes and his barb wire-wrapped bat, Lucille.

A flashback revealed how Jadis survived the massacre orchestrated by Simon, Negan’s top lieutenant. As the Saviors were mowing down the Scavengers, Jadis fled. She found a body and covered herself with blood, playing possum. After the massacre, she mourned and cleaned herself up.


Jadis
Jadis took Negan prisoner and his bat, Lucille.

Negan — who didn’t know about the massacre or that Simon ordered it — pleaded with Jadis. “That was the work of someone not following the program,” Negan said. “I’ll own this. I am sorry for this.”

Jadis chained Negan to a trolley, and then wheeled out another trolley with a walker tied to it. It appeared to give Negan a chance to fight for his life gladiator-style, as she did Rick earlier in the season.

A still tied-up Negan was able to get a gun and flare, as well as some of Jadis’ personal photos. He threatened to burn the photos with the flare. Jadis tried to wrestle the flare away, not only to save the photos, but signal a helicopter flying overhead.


Jadis
Jadis had a timer set for the helicopter pick-up.

The flare went out, and by the time she retrieved another one, the helicopter flew away. She threatened to burn Lucille as revenge, but Negan begged her not to (revealing Lucille was the name of his dead wife).


Jadis
Who is piloting the mystery helicopter?

She decided to spare both Lucille and Negan. Negan offered to join forces with her again, but she refused, retreating back into the heaps of garbage.

Meanwhile, Morgan continued to lose his sanity, setting up his departure from the show. He and Rick went after the Saviors that escaped Hilltop, brutally killing them all.

Both Rick and Carol told Morgan he was someone who saves, and not kills, but to no avail. When Rick asked why Negan saved him all the way back in Episode 1, Morgan said, “because my son was there.”

Later, after discovering Henry (whom he considers his son) was still alive, Morgan wept.

It was also revealed that the arrow that struck Tara was not tainted, so she will not turn.

5 Reasons Why Season 8 of ‘The Walking Dead’ Has Fans Fleeing

Ratings for the eighth season of The Walking Dead have dropped to first season levels, the lowest in the long-running franchise’s history.

And while the show is still among the most-watched on cable, what’s causing audiences to flee?

FANDOM breaks down five reasons why season eight of The Walking Dead has struggled.

1. Never-ending Conflict

AMC has branded the conflict between Rick Grimes and Negan as an all-out war, but it feels like a drawn-out war. That storyline lasted two full seasons, with both sides taking losses and no end in sight.

And while fan-favorite Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan has been fun to watch, his character is, well, problematic. Negan’s debut was savage and strong, but he’s basically become a caricature. If he had a mustache he’d be twirling it. Getting rid of Negan is the fastest and best way to get The Walking Dead back on track.

2. Too Many Characters

The all-out war has involved numerous factions: The Saviors, Alexandria, Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Scavengers, and Oceanside. And while it makes sense that a war has many players, jumping back and forth between each only drags out the plot. Take Oceanside for example. While we love the idea of an all-female community surviving on its own, the multiple visits have netted nothing but guns – guns that could’ve been found in a stash. And don’t even get us started on the Scavengers, who we can’t even understand.

3. Not Enough Zombies

The title of the show is The Walking Dead, but walkers have taken a back seat to human conflict. On one hand it makes sense. As time passes, communities come together, build walls, and amass weapons to fight the dead. But there’s been more attacks among the living. The undead threat, the horror element that once drove the show, is now gone.

4. Carl’s Death

War has many casualties. So when Carl – one of the original cast members – died of a walker bite instead of in a blaze of glory against Negan, fans felt cheated. Moreover, Carl represented two important things. The first was hope – the fact that a kid could grow up in a post-apocalyptic world and become a leader. The second was family. As Carl lay dying, Rick said everything he did was for him. Now that his son is gone, Rick has lost that motivation.

5. Broken Families

As we just mentioned, family and bonds are important to The Walking Dead. Carl’s death not only ended a father-son relationship, but also the caring mother-son relationship he had with Michonne, and his burgeoning romance with Enid. These were relationships the show built up and fans were invested in. The same could be said about Glenn and Maggie. Even relationships between newer characters – like Aaron and Eric, and Tara and Denise – ended before they are developed. When the show loses those bonds, it loses viewers.

5 Frustrating Things About ‘The Walking Dead’ That Make No Sense

The Walking Dead is one of the best programmes on TV. Watched by millions of fans around the world, the hit show from AMC has become a global phenomenon. However, things don’t always go to plan (anyone remember that deer?). So let’s look at five of the strangest and most unrealistic aspects of The Walking Dead.

Excellent Dental Hygiene


TWD - Negan Shave
Dental (and overall) hygiene is pretty spectacular for a zombie apocalypse.

The Walking Dead takes place in an apocalyptic world. We often see Rick and the rest of the gang move from place to place, scavenging for food and supplies for survival. Food and water are pretty scarce, so it’s strange that every single character has perfect teeth. Seriously, every person on the show has teeth as white as milk.

While everyone is trying to survive and find food, they must stop off and pick up a load of Oral-B ultra white and Listerine: Complete Whitening mouthwash. Either that or they have absolutely horrendous breath.

We’ve never, ever seen Rick and his gang of survivors pick up a load of dental hygiene products. I mean, do they even have toothbrushes anymore? If so, we haven’t seen them. Its an aspect of the show that just makes no sense. We need answers!

Unlimited Supply of Petrol


TWD - Rick and Vehicle
Just where do they get all this petrol from?

In every series of The Walking Dead, we have seen Rick, Daryl, and a host of other characters drive around in vehicles to get from point A to point B. In all eight series’, there has never been a time where petrol was an issue.

There seems to be a never-ending supply of petrol and diesel for the various vehicles the characters use. Where does all this come from? Do they siphon it from other cars? If so, which ones. It was more believable in Series 1 when our gang of survivors were on the road and came across abandoned cars all the time, but now, nope.

They’ve only got a handful of vehicles they use and they can’t go about sharing fuel from one to another and I highly doubt they pop over to the local petrol station to fill up (just leave the cash by the register, folks), so how do they never run out of fuel?

Characters Never Wear Armour

Characters never seem to protect themselves even though a single scratch is deadly.

In The Walking Dead, a single scratch from a walker is deadly. A single scratch. So why do the characters never seem to protect themselves? You could argue that armour is hard to come by, but the folks over in the Kingdom seem to have loads available, so why not use it?

Remember that time Carol was rescued by survivors from the Kingdom? They were protecting themselves pretty well. Once all the communities came together, did they not share? Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and everyone else just ride into battle wearing jeans and a t-shirt. But why?!

Never mind the danger of getting shot by The Saviours, what happens if you come across a walker? Sure, chances are that a walker will be shot or beheaded, but why take the risk? If all it takes is a single scratch to die and let the virus take over, surely it would be wise to suit up?

Why Is the Grass Not Overgrown


TWD - Prison Aerial Image
Who exactly cuts the lawn? Why is it not an overgrown mess?

Gardeners in The Walking Dead must be super busy throughout the year. Every location we visit on the show seems to be pretty well looked after. Take the prison for example. It’s filled with walkers, the interior is dark and damp, and there’s a sense of misery surrounding the place.

Then you look outside and it’s almost perfectly preserved. The grass is always perfectly mown. Perhaps the survivors use grass cutters every day to keep it tidy, but considering survival is of paramount importance, it’s highly unlikely that lawn styling is at the top of their to-do list.

What about lawnmowers? These machines are so noisy that they would attract attention in a heartbeat. Rick and the gang of survivors should be climbing through jungles at this point. Considering no-one looks after the environment, it seems pretty well kept.

Accurate Headshots. Every. Single. Time.


TWD - Rick aiming pistol
Running? Sprinting? No problem! Perfect headshots all the time.

Almost every episode of The Walking Dead features some kind of combat, either between groups of survivors or against the reanimated dead. This, in itself, is to be expected. What’s not to be expected, however, is how good everyone seems to be at shooting.

All of the survivors seem to have insane skills when it comes to bringing down the enemy. It’s hard enough to hit a target when standing still, so the fact that Rick and the other group members can run and hit their target in the head perfectly is just so unrealistic.

It goes even further. Many people don’t have the training and skills to handle weaponry and are thrust into the story simply by chance. Yes, they must have been able to stay alive and survive by having at least some skill, but the fact that everyone can shoot a walker or another human in the head perfectly is silly.

The Walking Dead has reached its eighth season, and while it remains excellent television, the show can often leave you thinking “Really?” It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it should offer at least some explanation for things that seem impossible.

Iowa Family-of-Four Found Dead in Their Mexican Condo While on Vacation

The bodies of an Iowa family-of-four have been found in the Mexican condo where they traveled for vacation last week, PEOPLE confirms.

There is no evidence of foul play at this time, authorities say. Autopsy results are pending.

Kevin and Amy Sharp, of Creston, were reportedly bound for Tulum on Mexico’s Caribbean coast when they headed out of the country with their children, Adrianna and Sterling.

Just after midnight Friday, the family was reported missing by relatives in Creston, according to a news release from Union County authorities. The Sharps had arrived in Mexico, according to a Creston police official, but were not heard from again.

Police on Friday quickly contacted the U.S. State Department, according to the county’s news release. In an ensuing welfare check, authorities discovered all four Sharps dead in their condo: Kevin, 41, Amy, 38, 12-year-old son Sterling and 7-year-old daughter Adrianna.

Amy’s sister told the Creston News Advertiser that the last that relatives had heard from the Sharps was not long after they arrived in Mexico. “On Wednesday at 7 p.m., Amy sent a text to our mom that said, ‘We made it to our condo,’ ” Renee Hoyt said. “That is the last communication she made.”

Hoyt said she had been told that Kevin texted someone else about 5 p.m. on March 15 but did not respond to a subsequent message, according to the paper.

The family was scheduled to return to the U.S. on Wednesday, the News Advertiser reports.

County official Mark Williams tells PEOPLE he does not have any information about where the bodies were found in the condo or for how long it appears they were dead before being discovered.

A cousin of Amy’s told ABC News, “To my knowledge, they went to sleep and never woke up.”

According to the Yucatan Times, the kids’ bodies were in the living room and their parents were in a bedroom. The four were “found in advanced state of decomposition.”

The Sharps’ relatives are requesting their privacy, according to the county news release.

A State Department official tells PEOPLE the American consulate in Mérida, Mexico, is supporting the Sharps’ relatives and “we extend our sincere condolences to friends and family.”

The official declined additional comment “out of respect for the family during this difficult time.”

Authorities in Tulum did not immediately return requests for comment.

Late Thursday, someone who appears to know the Sharps posted about the case on Facebook before their bodies were found.

“They have not been in contact with family or friends since LAST Thursday night after reporting that they made it to their condo safely,” Ashli Peterson wrote.

In a follow-up post Friday, Peterson wrote, “There was no foul play! At this time that is all the information we have. Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process. Thank you for all the posts, shares, and kind words.”

‘Fear the Walking Dead’: The Best Weapon to Have in a Zombie Attack

The world of Fear the Walking Dead and its sister show The Walking Dead is a very dangerous place.

Threats lurk around every corner, whether in undead or human form. So what’s the very best weapon to arm yourself with during the zombie apocalypse? Turns out one stands out among the rest: the axe. Madison Clark carried a hatchet in Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead, and Rick Grimes uses a handaxe in the current season of The Walking Dead.

An axe is a powerful slashing weapon that only requires one hand to wield (unlike, say, Michonne’s katana). It has greater reach and force than a short blade (like a dagger). There’s also the utilitarian value as well, chopping wood, rope, etc.

Whereas knives may be easier to find, they made not be able to penetrate bone or armor as well as an ax. Whereas a knife can stab and slash, axes are generally more effective. Axes do have the danger of getting lodged, but with enough momentum, an ax should be able to cleanly slice through.

Live to Fight Another Day

Sometimes it’s not about fighting the undead, but getting away from them. The professional bodyguards over at Draken Security recommend putting as much distance between you and your assailant as possible, with a well-placed shove or even better, a kick.

And if you want to really get range on your enemies, try a projectile weapon like a recurve bow. Unfortunately, bows require ammunition, light/visibility, and have a minimum range. The last thing you want to have is a zombie closing in close and being unable to let an arrow fly, or worse, run out of arrows.

Check out some more zombie fighting techniques in the video above, and be sure to watch Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead, on available now on home entertainment.

Season 4 of Fear premieres this April.

Rose McGowan: Harvey Weinstein ‘Would Prefer It If I Were Dead’

Rose McGowan claims in a new interview that disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who she has accused of sexually assaulting her, wishes she was dead.

The Charmed alum, 44, is among more than 50 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, and told Britain’s Sunday People that she has been followed and intimidated since she went public with her allegation last year that Weinstein, 65, raped her in his hotel room in Park City, Utah, in 1997.

“I’m sure he would prefer it if I were dead,” she told Sunday People. “He’s a sociopath. I am not afraid — but I should be. The people I find worse than him are his lawyers. The way they are acting has been disgusting.

“The people around him, that have supported him in his attempt to dominate and abuse women, are monsters, just as much as he is,” she continued. “There is no rehabilitation for that type of soul. They just need to fall off the planet. He doesn’t believe he has done anything wrong.”

As previously reported, Weinstein has denied McGowan’s assault claims, with his lawyer telling Us Weekly in a statement in January that McGowan was trying “to smear Mr. Weinstein with a bold lie.”

He has also denied claims by other women including Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, Annabella Sciorra and Daryl Hannah, with his spokesperson saying, “Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”

The allegations surfaced in October 2017 after The New York Times published an expose claiming Weinstein had a history of sexual misconduct dating back 30 years. He was fired from his own company in the wake of the allegations and his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, announced she was leaving him. Weinstein subsequently said he was seeking treatment and was spotted near a clinic in Arizona.

The allegations sent shockwaves through Hollywood and prompted the formation of the Time’s Up movement to provide legal defense for women who have faced sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace.

“Things are changing,” McGowan told Sunday People. “But there’s still so much to do. It’s about changing people’s lives.”

The actress told the newspaper that she is also planning to take further action against the former studio head, who she believes hired an Israeli spy company to harass her.

“It was violation on top of violation,” the Brave author said. “I believe they hacked my computer, released photos — they have done everything they can to ruin my life.”

The Walking Dead Introduces Compelling New Characters

It’s an exciting time to be a Walking Dead reader. The series is again venturing into uncharted waters as Michonne and her friends make first contact with the largest and most advanced colony they’ve encountered since the start of the zombie outbreak. Issue #177 loses some of the series’ recent momentum, but it still offers a compelling taste of the conflicts to come.

As he occasionally does, writer Robert Kirkman takes a more ensemble-minded focus to this issue. The narrative constantly bounces between scenes set at Alexandria, at the Hilltop and at the Commonwealth. That approach allows Kirkman to touch base with a number of characters, both old and new. Unfortunately, this is another case where the constantly shifting narrative gives the book a jumbled quality. The script never settles in with any one group of characters for very long before moving onto the next. The script also suffers from Kirkman’s tendency to overwrite dialogue. Certain conversations could really benefit from being pruned and streamlined in order to create a more natural flow.

We Need to Talk About Jadis’ Artwork in ‘The Walking Dead’

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from The Walking Dead Season 8, Episode 10 titled “The Lost and the Plunderers.” Proceed with caution.


The Walking Dead doesn’t mess around. Losing Carl in Season 8 Episode 9 wasn’t easy for fans, but it was time to close one arc so another could begin. And what better time to start telling new stories than the middle of a season? As everything burned behind Carl, Rick, and Michonne in the mid-season premiere, new stories were seeded to grow and become a new chapter.

Thanks to Jadis and Simon, the latest developments were also the most shocking moments of Season 8 Episode 10, “The Lost and the Plunderers.”

Jadis Says

It’s been a while since we were intimate with Jadis. Back in Season 8 Episode 7, “Time For After”, we all scratched our heads at Jadis painting in the nude, taking NSFW Rick pics. Since then, we’ve watched her double cross both Rick and Negan while speaking in weird pidgin english devoid of pronouns, quietly wishing she’d just STFU and help Rick beat The Saviors. But Jadis had a different idea of what success looked like for The Scavengers, and it didn’t include saving their lives.

It did, however, include a meat grinder.

After Simon murdered her entire colony and they turned to zombie, Jadis lured them all to a giant meat grinder and turned them all into mush on a conveyer belt.

Before pulverizing her new zombie colony, Jadis explained the origin of The Scavengers to Rick and Michonne while wearing a white dress, splattered in blood.

I used to come here to find things to paint on. Metal sheets. Fabrics. And then after everything changed, I realized this whole place was a canvas – but we were the paint. We could create something new. We could become something new. We did. This was our world, apart from everyone else, in every way. — Jadis

If post-apocalyptic leaders are opportunistic colonizers, Jadis was certainly the most creative. More importantly, Jadis started speaking in complete sentences for the first time, making this the most shocking moment of the episode.

Meanwhile, The Whisperers have been rumored to be making an appearance in The Walking Dead TV Series. Left alone to her own vices, this shocking plot twist may have just set the stage for Jadis to create and lead them.

Was this episode our last glimpse of Jadis, or are her complete sentences indicative of her next art project?

Idiots Rule

Simon has always had crazy eyes, but his allegiance to Negan always seemed to keep his loco in check. At every turn, Simon appeared to be Negan’s best Lieutenant. A lawful evil character in nature, Simon was scary because he did what he was told without asking why. Turns out that was fake news. Simon showed his true colors in Season 8 Episode 10 and went full Chaotic Evil.

Simon is a natural born killer, and he clearly doesn’t worry about following the leader.

Will he lead a coup within The Saviors to oust Negan, or will Negan set him up on a Tinder date with Lucille? Let’s hope for the latter, because Simon is scary af right now.

Negan, Just Admit It

It was bound to happen. While Simon went full evil, Negan went full lovable and fans don’t want him to die. Ever. When Rick told Negan that Carl is dead and left him a note, Negan’s backstory became more relevant than ever. Like a teacher who lost a student too soon, Negan is clearly heartbroken, and now we’re all crying with him.

Rick’s obsession with killing Negan is no longer his best source of power. It might be time to follow a different path, and consider Carl’s advice to stop fighting with Negan. Is Rick too consumed with vengeance to give peace with Negan a chance?

Ocean Size

Although it was the biggest snoozer of the entire episode, the ladies of Oceanside decided not to kill Enid, and we’re proud of them for making the right decision, so she can read the letter Carl left for her.

How will Enid react when she finds out about Carl?

You Win Or You Die

Ultimately, The Walking Dead Season 8 seems to have gone full Game of Thrones, with a twist. For many seasons now, members of colonies wind up dead en masse after poor decisions by leadership, but the leader is usually left standing – forever changed. Each leader rules their colony with a different governing philosophy, and believes they have done everything humanly possible to protect their people from flesh eating zombies and evildoer humans.

But with Simon making moves and Negan making us all cry, who are the leaders now? Is Jadis the Mother of Whisperers? Is Simon the new Ramsay Bolton of The Sanctuary? What about Negan – is he more like Jamie Lannister or Jon Snow ? Either way, there’s a battle amongst leaders which continues to end in the deaths of the people who trust them. Fans can only hope a leader with good character alignment wins long enough to keep Carl’s dream of peace alive in Alexandria before Jadis returns with The Whisperers in tow.

What did you think of the latest episode of The Walking Dead? Do you think Jadis is the new Mother of Whisperers? Let us know @getfandom on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram .

Why ‘Walking Dead’ Fans Are Agog At The Surprise Cameos In Carl’s Dream

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the midseason premiere of Season 8 of The Walking Dead, titled “Honor”. Proceed with caution.

Fans of The Walking Dead finally got some answers in the Season 8 midseason premiere. And we don’t mean the long-awaited reveal of Carl’s fate. Although, following the shocking ending to the midseason finale, which showed us that Carl had been bitten, we did finally discover that yes, he does die. And that no, he doesn’t hold the secret to the cure. At least, there was nothing to suggest that he might.

But while we learned the nature of his demise, it was another revelation that had fans most stunned. Cast your mind back to the season’s opening episode, and you’ll recall seeing grey-bearded ‘Old Man Rick’ in a soft-focus sequence, living in harmony with Michonne and an older Judith within a rebuilt community. Was it the future? What was the meaning of the scene’s inclusion? Where was Carl? And why was Weird Al Yankovic’s “Another One Rides the Bus” soundtracking the scene? All questions that the sequence provoked were addressed in the midseason finale.

The scene was revealed to be Carl’s vision of the future, recounted to Rick on his deathbed. As for that song? During his speech, Carl says he saw Judith growing up listening to the songs he used to listen to – and so, it appears that Carl’s a closet Weird Al Yankovic fan. But most jarringly, Carl’s vision included both turncoat Eugene and mortal enemy Negan.

In it, Negan is a part of the community. He’s shown tending a vegetable patch. A 6-year-old Judith approaches; he greets her with a huge smile, saying: “Good morning to you, darling”. And the internet just can’t get its collective head around what it saw.

Some thought it was hilarious:

Others just straight up loved it:

And while there’s no guarantee that what Carl envisioned will play out, for fans of the comic books, it confirmed the tack the show will take (or at least gave a nod to what happens in the comics):

But it seems that while fans were left open-mouthed at Negan’s cameo, reactions weren’t overly hostile. When it came to Eugene’s appearance, however, fans reacted angrily:

It seems that fans are more willing and prepared to forgive villain Negan his misdemeanours than they are Eugene — who they might never forgive for betraying his own.

QUIZ: How Did These ‘The Walking Dead’ Characters Die?

It’s no surprise that there’s a fairly high kill count on The Walking Dead. New characters or original fan favorites (RIP Glenn), the series has proven that no one is safe. As we head into the second half of Season 8, it’s impossible to predict who will make it out alive.

With a constant threat at the remaining survivors’ doorstep and a revolving door of characters to care about who will only break your heart when they go and die on us, there’s a long list of dearly departed on the show. But how well do you remember the final swan song of these characters that met their end at the hands (or teeth) of walkers or other fellow survivors?

*Note: the questions in this quiz relate to the TV series only, not the comics. Also, “death” is considered once the living character passes, not when they reanimate and become undead.

In Syria, the New Offensive by Assad and the Russians Might Kill the Revolution, But It Will Be the Peace of the Dead

BEIRUT—The words “de-escalation zone” appear not to mean quite the same thing in Russian as they do in English.

That, at least, is a conclusion one might draw looking at the present scene in Syria’s East Ghouta, where the Russian air force has assisted its Syrian client regime in an enormous escalation of what was already an extremely high level of violence in the district on the eastern fringe of Damascus that has been under choking siege for five years, and was also the site of the infamous August 2013 Sarin gas attack that killed over 1,000 in a single morning.

The numbers speak for themselves: more than 250 people were killed by Syrian and Russian air bombardment, and over 1,000 wounded, on Monday and Tuesday alone, according to the Associated Press. At least four field hospitals have been rendered inoperative by apparently deliberate targeting, according to the Syrian American Medical Society, a relief organization with medical staff currently on the ground in Ghouta.

‘The Walking Dead’: Where the Characters Stand Before the Midseason 8 Premiere

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 8 will see plenty of heartbreak and perhaps the end of the “all-out war” between Rick Grimes and Negan.

During the midseason finale, fans discovered that Negan’s Saviors were not so easily defeated by Rick’s Militia. Alexandria was burned down, with its survivors fleeing to the sewers. It was there were Rick reunited with Carl, only to learn that his son was bitten by a walker — a death sentence.

Here’s where the major characters stand before the midseason premiere.

Negan


the walking dead season 8 negan

Negan has had more lives than a cat. Seemingly pinned down with Gabriel by a walking herd, he survived, rallied the remaining Saviors, and attacked Alexandria. He waited for Rick to return to ambush him, and the two exchanged blows before Rick fled. He is unrelenting in his quest to display the heads of “the king” aka Ezekiel, “the widow” aka Maggie, and Rick.

Carl


the walking dead season 8 carl

Over the last eight seasons, Carl has gone from young man to brave leader. But despite becoming hardened after so many losses, including his mother Lori, Carl still learned compassion. He tried to sacrifice himself so that Negan would spare Alexandria. He helped the mysterious Siddiq to safety, getting bitten by a walker in the process. A bite is a death sentence. If Carl asks Michonne to help him end his own life, it will be the second time she’s had to assist a friend’s suicide — the first being Andrea.

Rick


the walking dead season 8 rick

Rick has vowed to kill Negan, and will surely be emboldened to do so after the death of his son and destruction of Alexandria. He will also want revenge against Jadis and the Scavengers, who promised to help him but fled.

Michonne

Michonne, who thinks of Carl as her own son, will also be emboldened after his death. She has served as Rick’s partner and conscience, and the two may embark on a quest of revenge together.

Maggie


the walking dead season 8 maggie

Maggie’s top responsibility is to protect her people. “The Widow” vows that the Hilltop will be the last stand of the all-out war, and previews show the remaining Kingdom and Alexandria survivors taking refuge there. Perhaps her pregnancy will finally begin to show as well.

Ezekiel


the walking dead season 8 ezekiel

Like Maggie, Ezekiel’s responsibility is to protect his people. With Shiva dead and the Kingdom defenseless and overrun, Ezekiel surrenders himself to the Saviors.

Dwight


the walking dead season 8 dwight

Dwight finally sided with Rick’s Militia, leading his fellow Saviors into an ambush setup up by Daryl, Tara, Rosita, and Michonne. The continue to question his loyalty but allow him to join them in the sewers. Unfortunately, his betrayal was witnessed by Lauren, who will undoubtedly tell Negan what happened. Negan will be very unhappy to learn of his top lieutenant’s betrayal and will want to take care of him personally.

Eugene


the walking dead season 8 eugene

Eugene made his choice (perhaps out of self-preservation), creating the ingenious iPod plane that led the walkers away from The Sanctuary. Although he helped Father Gabriel and Dr. Carson escape the Savior stronghold, it’s pretty clear where his loyalties lie. Short of killing Negan himself (which he’s had several opportunities to do), it’s unlikely Rick will ever welcome him back.

Morgan



Morgan is a wildcard. He gave up his pacifistic ways and became a ruthless killer, gunning down many Saviors. He was last seen hiding at the Kingdom. His character will be joining the sister show, Fear the Walking Dead, after this season. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has said that Season 8B leads directly to Season 4 of Fear, so it’ll be interesting to see how that will play out.

The Walking Dead Season 8 returns on February 25 in the U.S., and the U.K. the following night.

Mark E. Smith Dead: The Fall Lead Singer Dies at 60

The lead singer of the English post-punk band The Fall, Mark E. Smith, died on Wednesday, January 24. He was 60. 

The Fall’s manager Pam Van Damned released a statement to announce Smith’s passing via Cherry Red Records.

“It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith. He passed this morning at home,” the statement reads. “A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days. In the meantime, Pam & Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time.” 

The late singer formed The Fall in 1976 with original members Martin Bramah, Una Baines and Tony Friel. Smith was the only founding member to stick with the group and released more than 30 albums with the band.

Smith’s former bandmate Marc Riley, who was in The Fall from 1978 to 1983, spoke about his passing on BBC 6 Music.

“[Smith] taught me a lot about life and he taught me a lot about music,” Riley said on Wednesday. The news broke when he was on air. “Aged 16 he really did teach me so much … The Fall were my favorite band when I joined and they were still my favorite band when I got kicked out.”

Smith’s ex-wife Brix Smith Start took to Twitter to react to the news. ”I’m taking the news in right now. I will put a statement out tomorrow. I hope you will all understand. Thank you for your lovely messages, they mean a lot. I love you, Brix,” she captioned a photo of with Smith. 

Smith was also married to Saffron Prior from 1991 to 1995. He is survived by wife Elenor Smith. The pair tied the knot in 2001.

Joel Taylor of Discovery Channel’s Storm Chasers Dead at Age 38

The storm chasing community is reeling from the news of Joel Taylor’s sudden death. He was 38.

The Elk City, Oklahoma, native, who starred on Discovery Channel’s documentary reality television series Storm Chasers, died on Tuesday, according to his friends who shared the sad news on social media.

The cause of Joel’s death remains unclear at this time. It is not believed to be storm chasing-related.

Reps for the Discovery Channel did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

Best friend and former costar Reed Timmer dedicated a touching message to Taylor on Twitter.

“RIP my best friend and storm chasing partner, Joel Taylor. I am shocked and absolutely devastated by the loss of my incredible, caring friend,” Timmer tweeted along with photos of them when they were chasing storms together since 2008.

“We chased so many intense storms, and I wish we could have just one more storm chase. I’ll miss you forever, Joel. We lost a legend,” added Timmer, who attended the University of Oklahoma with Taylor, who studied meteorology.

Another friend, Mike Olbinski, remembered Taylor’s bright smile.

“I was lucky enough to meet Joel a few years ago at Reed’s wedding. He was so kind to me and we got to hang out for a bit during those few days,” Olbinski tweeted with a photo from the wedding. “I snapped this photo of him and that just seemed like who he was. A huge smile. RIP Joel Taylor…you will be so missed.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Taylor’s storm chasing team also expressed their condolences.

“Our community of Elk City and the Storm Chasing community lost a great guy today. Joel Taylor was truly an inspiration to myself and many who knew him. He was one of the most level headed chasers on the roads and truly a classy guy outside of chasing,” Team Western OK Chaser shared on Facebook.

“He didn’t chase for the glory he chased because he had a true passion for storms. In the last few years he’d load up with his dad and go chase and not even take a camera,” the group said. “Our hearts are hurting for his mom Tracy and dad Jimmy along with his brother and sister and their children. Please know you are in our prayers. RIP Joel.”

Storm Chasers was filmed each year in the area known as Tornado Alley due to the frequency and severity of tornadoes occurring there in the central part of the country. Several teams of storm chasers appeared in the series and Taylor joined the cast in early 2008 as part of the team from the website TornadoVideos.Net (TVN) that was led by Timmer.

The show was canceled after five seasons in January 2012.

Florida Man Arrested After Allegedly Leading Cops to Wife’s Dead Body on Day Before Christmas

A Florida man is being held on a second-degree murder charge after police say he allegedly led them to his wife’s dead body on the day before Christmas, PEOPLE confirms.

According to a news release from police in Titusville, Florida, Timothy Allen Upthegrove was already a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife, Lori Lynn Upthegrove, when he allegedly gave police information that directed them to her body early on Sunday.

Police believe Timothy, 53, killed Lori on Dec. 18 when the couple got into an argument at their home in Titusville. Then, according to allegations in the news release, “the victim’s body was placed into the back of her vehicle by her husband and driven to a wooded area.”

Police did not disclose a cause of death. A spokesperson from the Titusville Police Department tells PEOPLE that the case is still under investigation and that more details will be released at a later date.

Lori, 51, was reported missing on Tuesday by a family member.

“Based on evidence found both in the home and in her vehicle, detectives believed Lori had been the victim of a violent crime,” police said in the release. Timothy was arrested Tuesday on charges of obstructing justice after he allegedly made false statements to police.

In a statement to the Orlando Sentinel, Timothy’s father, Ed Upthegrove, offered his condolences to Lori’s relatives and said that his family is working with law enforcement.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to Lori’s family and friends during this difficult time,” Ed told the newspaper. “We’re cooperating with investigators as they continue to gather evidence in this case.”

PEOPLE confirms that Timothy is being held in the Brevard County Jail without bail. He has not yet entered a plea, and court records do not indicate if he has retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

‘Alien probe’ asteroid is dead quiet, but is that good news or bad news?

oumuamua aliens

A couple of months back, a really, really weird asteroid flew through our Solar System. It looked nothing like any object humanity had ever spotted in space, and was moving might fast. First it was identified as a comet, then an asteroid, and most recently scientists have been wondering if maybe it was actually an alien spacecraft. Now, after spending hours listening to the strange visitor with powerful radio telescopes, scientists say they haven’t heard a peep.

The object, named Oumuamua, is shaped like a cigar. If it’s really an asteroid it would be the very first interstellar asteroid — that is, a rock that originated outside of our Solar System — to be observed by humans, but its bizarre form and speedy entry and exit gave alien hunters reason to believe it might actually be otherworldly technology. Now, it seems, that question will have to wait a little longer to be answered.

‘The Walking Dead’: One Fan Theory Bites the Dust in the Mid-Season Finale

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from Season 8, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead, entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” Proceed with caution.

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8 ended with a shocking twist. We all anticipated a major death to leave us all feeling mightily downbeat ahead of the holiday season — and while we wait for Season 8 to start up again in February. But what actually transpired knocked us for six.

If you’re still reading, we’re assuming you’ve either seen the episode or you don’t care about spoilers. So we’ll go ahead now and say it – Carl revealed he’d been bitten. The internet is generally pretty upset about this turn of events, and many have already said adios, even though he’s not gone just yet. But what some are mourning even more than his loss is the sad demise of a popular fan theory. Namely, the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory, which, in one fell swoop, has just been debunked. Or so it may seem.

The theory revolves around the notion that the events of The Walking Dead are actually Carl’s recollections of what happened through the zombie apocalypse, and that the end of the show will reveal Carl as an old man recounting his tales retrospectively. If Carl has been bitten by a walker, his life is about to end – which puts the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory well and truly to bed. RIP ‘Old Man Carl’ theory.

But will events play out like we expect? Let’s look at the evidence.

The Case For

When people get bitten by walkers in The Walking Dead, they transform into the undead themselves. No exceptions. Unless, like Hershel, they get bitten on a limb that’s amputated immediately. Or they get shot or stabbed in the head before they turn. Carl’s bite is on his torso and can’t be amputated. Plus, he’s surely been concealing the bite for too long for any attempt to cut it out to save him.

And as showrunner Scott M. Gimple told The Walking Dead aftershow, Talking Dead: “It will play out as bites play out on the show.”

He followed up with: “It’s very important to Carl’s story and the entire story — what happens in the next episode – so I’m just focused on the fact that right now Carl’s alive and he has some business to attend to. That is a one-way ticket, but I’d like to think that the things we see in the next episode are so important to his life and the other characters’ lives.”

Let’s also draw attention to a deleted Facebook post Chandler Riggs’s father reportedly wrote which stated that Riggs had been fired from the role of Carl in the show… and also an interview Chandler Riggs gave to the Hollywood Reporter in which he says Carl is “going to die.”

The Case Against


carl-the-walking-dead
Is this or isn’t this the moment that Carl got bitten?

It seems remiss to pay heed to an emotional Facebook post by a third party, that’s since been deleted. And there’s always the possibility that it’s part of a fake-out. And let’s also imagine that Riggs’s interview is part of that fake-out. A tall order, maybe. A lot of fans would be very angry.

But let’s look again at Gimple’s quote. He’s been pretty non-committal about what exactly happens. He doesn’t refer to a “walker” bite specifically, just “bites”. And when he says “one-way ticket” that doesn’t necessarily mean death as a direct result of a walker bite.

When Gimple talks about what happens in the next episode being very important to the entire story, could he actually be referring to the introduction of the Whisperers?

The Whisperers is a group from the comics about whom there’s been incessant chatter with regard to their arrival in the show. They wear the skins of the dead and also adopt their behaviour. This allows them to move among the walkers, undetected.

It’s possible that Carl was bitten by a Whisperer, and not a walker which would mean his destiny – at this juncture anyway – isn’t necessarily undead. If you look at the wound, this would seem to support this. It’s a perfect imprint of teeth clamped down on flesh – there’s no attempt to tear flesh away, which is the instinct of zombies in the show. They’re compelled to eat flesh; it’s their sole driving force. We’ve seen the results of a zombie attack enough times to know that they’re usually more savage than this. That doesn’t mean to say he won’t die, of course, but maybe it plays out in some other way.

But what do you think? Is the ‘Old Man Carl’ theory truly dead and buried? Is there a chance we’ve just seen the start of the Whisperers storyline? Let us know via our social channels @getfandom

‘The Walking Dead’: A Rebellion Crumbles in ‘How It’s Gotta Be’

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead, entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” Proceed with caution.

In last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, the show went deep (maybe a little too deep) into the mind of the show’s number one coward Eugene — which ended in him becoming a full Savior.

This week, Season 8 arrived at its mid-season finale with this latest episode entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” This episode brought everything to a massive high as Daryl’s attack from last week put all the communities in grave danger, reversing all the progress Rick, Maggie, and Ezekiel made.

All the Colonies Are in Danger



Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom went under siege as Negan and his forces began to retaliate after the attack on Sanctuary. Thanks to Eugene, the Saviors escaped the walker hordes and each of Negan’s lieutenants decided to pay their colonies a friendly visit.

Maggie and her people were put under pressure by Simon while they were on the road. Simon and his men had Jerry hostage, demanding for Maggie’s cooperation. At the Kingdom, Ezekiel tried to hide from Gavin, who is searching thoroughly for him. Gavin eventually caught up to Ezekiel leaving the once king’s fate unknown. Later, Rick arrives back to Alexandria and finally came toe-to-toe with Negan in his own home. After a brutal brawl, Rick escaped the skirmish leaving Negan alone for the time being.

The damage has been done heavily to each of the colonies, so the question is: will the resistance be able to bounce back from this? Just how will Rick and his forces continue the fight? As of now, things don’t look so good and who knows if they’ll be able to recover.

Enid & Aaron Try to Reach out to Oceanside



After leaving the Hilltop, Aaron and Enid set out to Oceanside to try to convince them to join the fight. Instead of things going smoothly, it lead to Enid shooting Natania on accident because she thought a Savior got the jump on Aaron. This turn of events may have soured things a bit for the negotiations.

Oceanside could have proved to be the resistances trump card when things went wrong (which they already have). However, because of Enid’s rash actions, what could happen to both Aaron and herself? Could they still salvage a possible partnership even after what just happened?

Eugene Shows Remorse



After Eugene’s firm decision that he made to Father Gabriel — telling him he would never go along with rescuing Doctor Carson — he then decides to go back on his word. Eugene offered Gabriel and Carson a way out, which Gabriel thanked Eugene for doing the right thing. However, Eugene didn’t seem fully convinced about whether or not his actions could be considered “right.”

This seemed to come out of nowhere as it’s hard to figure out where Eugene truly stands. Has he truly become a Savior or was it too quick to judge him in the last episode? He did play a role in letting the Saviors escape, so that’s also something to take into account. Eugene still proves to be an enigma and it’ll be interesting to see what fate has in store for him.

Carl Is Bitten



Throughout this whole episode, Carl really pulled through by demonstrating heroic features and leadership abilities. As Negan came right up to Alexandria’s doorstep, Carl decided to take charge, using himself as a decoy as Daryl and the others escaped.

He and Negan then had a showdown where he told the Savior leader that he would offer himself as a sacrifice to stop the bloodshed from continuing. After the others break through Alexandria’s walls, Carl hides away which angered Negen, causing him to rain hellfire onto the town.

Unfortunately, Carl couldn’t escape unscathed as he revealed to his father and Michonne underneath the towns sewage system that he’s been bitten off-screen by a walker. This is a sad reveal as viewers were beginning to see the potential that Carl could have as a leader which could make him a more central character in the series if Rick were to pass on.

Though it may have ended with him in a bad state, it’s still an unknown if this bite will mark the end of the young hero. It’s possible that some other force could cause him to lose his life, perhaps even by Negan’s own hands.

Fans will just have to keep guessing as what will happen next, as The Walking Dead will be off for a while. After this mid-season finale, it’s safe to say that the series still hasn’t lost its touch by dropping a major shocker to keep viewers thoroughly engaged.

‘The Walking Dead’: Will Negan Die and If So, Who Will Kill Him?

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from Season 8, Episode 7 of The Walking Dead entitled “Time For After“. Proceed with caution.

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8 is imminent, and preview footage suggests that Negan regains the upper hand. But he can’t possibly win out over Rick and the gang, can he? In the comics, we’ve seen that there’s still plenty more to come from Negan. But if we’ve learned anything, it’s that the TV show doesn’t always follow the comics, having diverged from the comic narrative on numerous occasions.

There’s plenty of fans of The Walking Dead that want to see Negan dead, and they’re not alone. So do plenty of the characters in the TV series – and they’re not all on Rick’s side.

So who are the most likely characters to finish off Negan? Let’s take a look…

Rick


Rick Grimes Walking Dead
Rick at his lowest ebb, broken by Negan.

Rick has vowed time and again that he will kill Negan. And it sort of feels like if it’s anyone else that finishes him off, Rick will have been robbed of the chance not only to avenge the deaths of Abraham, and Glenn in particular, but also to repay him for the threats he made against son Carl. Oh, and for forcing him to the point where he was about to cut his own son’s arm off. As viewers, we want Rick to get his very satisfying revenge for all Negan has put him through, including reducing him to a shell of a man after pushing him to breaking point.

However, Rick seems to be softening. In the season premiere, we saw Rick red-eyed and deeply upset – over what we don’t yet know – but he was also muttering about mercy prevailing over wrath. Echoing the words spoken by new character Siddiq, he seems to be re-evaluating, and trying to find an alternative to killing in order to survive. He wants to preserve his humanity, and has already demonstrated he’s against Daryl’s plan to attack the Saviors in a way that results in the death of innocents. This suggests he might yet be lenient when it comes to Negan. If he’s faced with the opportunity to kill a defenceless Negan, right now it feels like Rick might not take it.

Daryl

Daryl has his own personal reasons for wanting revenge against Negan. The ruthless leader of the Saviors imprisoned him and subjected him to torture in an attempt to break him. He had to listen to that earwormy “Easy Street” song on loop for goodness’ sake. Enough to drive anyone to murder? It’s no surprise that Daryl is taking a hard line when it comes to the Saviors right now. He’s lived under Negan’s rule, and knows it ain’t pretty. For Daryl, there is no mercy and if he gets half a chance, he’ll take it.

In a face-off between Negan and a Daryl hellbent on retribution, we don’t fancy Negan’s chances much.

Eugene


The Walking Dead-Eugene-Tanya-Frankie
Eugene is asked to make suicide pills by Tanya and Frankie.

In Episode 7, we were reminded that Eugene was asked by Tanya and Frankie, two of Negan’s wives, to manufacture suicide pills which they planned to use to take Negan out. It would likely have worked, but when Eugene discovered their true intentions he refused to hand them over. He later gave them to Sasha, of course.

But was the reason he wouldn’t hand them over because he was scared? Probably. Eugene has always been a big scaredy cat, afraid to step out of line. Episode 7 spent time focusing on Eugene, and exploring where his head is at right now. The outcome? Yes, he wants to survive and is partially driven by selfish motivations, but he is also keen to save others. We saw him sticking his neck out in order to save people – he was ultimately prepared to risk Dwight shooting him in order to press ahead with his plan to lure the walkers away and save the many. He’s certainly a tortured man, haunted by what happened to Sasha. He’s a man that’s turned to drink in order to quiet his mind and sleep through the night. There’s still a chance that this man in turmoil could do something unpredictable.

If it came to it now, could he end Negan’s life? “I am Negan” may trip off his tongue but if it was for the greater good, could he redeem himself by killing Negan? Quite possibly. He’s definitely braver, more capable, and more confident in his capabilities than he used to be. And maybe he’ll need to sacrifice himself to do it.

Dwight

Dwight has gone from Negan’s right-hand man, and a man we detest, to a sympathetic character prepared to stab his leader in the back. Or head. Ahem.

But will he need to be the one to kill Negan in order to prove once and for all to Rick and co. – Daryl and Tara especially who have very specific reasons to hate and distrust him – that he’s on their side? That he’s not the villain they thought him to be? And if he is, will he have to lose his life in order to get redemption? He did kill Denise after all, and he’s been wearing Daryl’s leather gilet since forever. If those aren’t grounds for dying in order to be redeemed we don’t know what are.

Rosita

Rosita, like Rick, has also sworn to kill Negan. In fact, she tried once and came a cropper. It turns out she’s the unluckiest assassin ever. The bullet, which she had Eugene make for her, was on target – but it rebounded off Lucille. Rosita is still understandably mad at Negan for brutally murdering Abraham, the man she loved, and she has vowed revenge. And though she ruled herself out of Daryl’s reckless plan that flies in the face of Rick’s wishes, she could still prove to be a thorn in Negan’s side when push comes to shove. And she’d probably be willing to sacrifice herself in order to avenge the death of Abraham, right?

Carl

Because of Negan, Carl has almost lost an arm at the hands of his father and almost lost his life too. Were it not for Shiva jumping in at a critical moment, Carl would be dead right now. Not only that, he’s seen his dad driven to breaking point by the cruel dictator, and has even spent time in his company at the Sanctuary – where Negan made fun of his missing eye. Carl has been made to feel small and powerless by Negan, and has more reason than anyone to seek revenge. Having already once gone on a mission to kill Negan, Carl could easily do so again – especially if the people he loves are under real threat.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Jim Nabors, TV’s Gomer Pyle and baritone singing star, dead at 87

TwitterFacebook

Jim Nabors, whose wide-eyed character Gomer Pyle was so popular on The Andy Griffith Show that he got his own spinoff and whose surprisingly sonorous baritone singing voice made him a successful recording artist, has died. He was 87.

“Golll-ly!” was just one of many corn-pone catchphrases that propelled the hit ’60s show’s naive and lovable Mayberry gas-station attendant to popularity (beating out others like “Garsh!” and “Sha-zam!”).

When CBS decided that Pyle would leave Mayberry for the military, he became Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., where his childlike innocence would constantly rattle his Marine sergeant. The spinoff lasted six seasons. Read more…
